Speakers Bureau

District Speakers

 A district speaker is usually a member of the district board of directors.

She may speak about any subject pertaining to sisterhood activities. She may participate in the installation of officers, in Sisterhood Shabbat, or may conduct a Leadership Workshop. It is advisable to utilize her services at a Board meeting specially scheduled, if possible, at the time of her visit for other purposes.

Just as with Women of Reform Judaism, the District can honor only one request per sisterhood on alternate years. This allows every sisterhood to invite either a WRJ speaker or a district speaker each year.

Sisterhoods will pay for her registration and meals. The District can cover the cost of her transportation and hotel, if necessary. Contact the district treasurer for more information.

 A voluntary contribution to the WRJ Mid-Atlantic District Scholarship Fund or the YES Fund in honor of the speaker is recommended.

WRJ Speakers

The WRJ Speakers Bureau offers an opportunity to bring a dynamic, experienced WRJ leader to your sisterhood, women’s group, or district. Our speakers can discuss various topics with your group, including, but not limited to, leadership development, advocacy, WRJ history and priorities, and fundraising. 

We encourage you to take advantage of this program, which aims to help develop leadership skills, provide education, and bring spirituality to your local community. You can request a speaker to visit in person or virtually, often participating in multiple events during a weekend. Sisterhoods in good standing with both WRJ and their WRJ District are qualified to have a WRJ North American Representative visit for no charge once every two years.

Speakers Bureau engagements are scheduled based on availability. All requests must be submitted at least two months in advance of your requested date. Requests must be submitted via the WRJ Speakers Bureau Request Form.
